LET'S TALK HONEST
Some people take for granted that I was gifted with dancing skills. Some others wished they were as strong as I am, as resilient as I look, that they endured sports as I do. So people wondered how I make harsh things look easy, that I hike like a machine, that I get out of my physical confort zone with quite a good mood. I always giggled and say that I was not gifted with anything special. It is just a question of HOW BAD YOU WANT THINGS and HOW MUCH YOU WANNA PUT IN TO ACHIEVE THOSE GOALS.
I never used to do sports when I was a kid or a teen. I was grown up with piano lessons, to become a 'señorita' to get married, grow children and talk about shopping and senseless staff. When you are a child or a teen, you don't wanna let people down. You don't understand what is the wrong in you, you don't know how to make your way without hurting others. It took me a long while to undestand that the first person I had to show respect to is MYSELF. In my early 20s I started doing one of the things I wanted the most: dancing. With no technique nor previoua knowledge, you find a lot of initial physical boundaries. But I put in all. Not just I attended classes, but practiced, attended workshops, congresses, watched videos and looked for ways to improved my skills. Over the time, I made it to become a dance instructor myself and inspire others. Perhaps due to this harsh way, I take no shit. I want people to commit and give their best in whatever they do.
In my early 30s I started taking my dancing skills to another niche: dance fitness. Let's talk honest. In the beginning, most of my attendees were fitter than I was, stronger, endured more... So, I took it serious, lost some weight, started training with other activities at the gym that took me out of my confort zone and... voilá! Now, I am a well reputed fitness instructor bringing my passion and motivation to several places.
Last but not the least, I have started hiking tough mountains under severe weather conditions. This new acquired hobby has taken me to Iceland and the scottish Highlands. Those were real life test to my fitness condition.
